[Bug testsuite/13874] New: many server tests run and fail during "make check"

             Bug #: 13874
           Summary: many server tests run and fail during "make check"
           Product: systemtap
           Version: unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: testsuite
    Classification: Unclassified

systemtap.server testsuite log

We have "make check" to run tests that don't require the build to have been
installed and don't require any system privileges, as opposed to the full test
run of "make installcheck".

However, it appears that many of the tests in systemtap.server/ are not heeding
this convention, and thus report false failures.  Rather than what they're
supposed to be testing, they look like failures mostly from not being in
stapusr, or not having working sudo to start a server.  (I'm running this in a
completely unprivileged buildbot environment.)

In server_args.exp there is also a regex "parentheses () not balanced" error,
thanks to some program output being fed back into a regex pattern -- not a safe
thing to do in general...

I've attached the systemtap.server/ portion of the testsuite log.  For tests
that can reasonably work in this environment, it's fine to keep them in "make
check", but everything else should probably be gated by [installtest_p].
